|City Year Alumni in Education|
City Year alumni are making an impact in communities across the country, especially those that choose to return to the classroom as educators. As City Year works to dramatically improve the graduation pipeline and improve the lives of thousands of students each year, our alumni are turning their service into a career by teaching in communities that need them most. Here are just some of their stories.
